Description :
This study aims to investigate the morphology of actively eroding bank gullies, i.e., geometrical characteristics resulting from past erosion and active erosion processes shaping the gully, and to find relationships with environmental site characteristics, such as topographical parameters, material properties and climate. The ultimate goal is to identify the most important controlling factors of past and present bank gully erosion. 55 active bank gullies formed in different lithologies by various erosion processes have been selected in the Guadalentin basin and the surroundings of Guadix (Southeast Spain).
